KANSAS CITY, Mo. — So far in the Faith in KC series, 41 Action News anchor Taylor Hemness has spoken several times with leaders of different faith communities in Kansas City.

But, as you may know, a person's faith/religion/spirituality is most often a very personal thing. So this week, the conversation is going to look a bit different.

Taylor is speaking with Susan Paynter, a woman who has grown her faith over the course of the pandemic by leading virtual conversations with others in her church congregation.

The discussion includes details on how Susan came to be part of a church later in life, and how she navigated that transition while also losing her husband unexpectedly.

The full conversation will be available Sunday morning, Feb. 14. If you have suggestions on people Taylor should speak with in future episodes, you can email him at
